ABOUT VACATION RENTALS IN COZUMEL
Cozumel island, one of the eight municipalities of the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico, is embossed on the Caribbean Sea, 12 miles off the coast. Cozumel offers snorkeling, water skiing, swimming, deep-sea fishing, scuba diving, and bargain hunting for those who want to have fun in the sun while staying at some of the best Mexico Vacation Homes here. Archeology fans would love it the most here, as Cozumel has plenty of historical Mayan sites.
The Museo de la Isla de Cozumel showcases Cozumel's endangered species, the origins of the island, and its present-day topography and plant life. The Mayan ruins of San Gervasio are located between the town of San Miguel and the eastern coast. San Miguel is the only town in Cozumel, and it can be easily explored on foot.
Scuba Diving Magazine has rated the area the #2 dive site in the Caribbean. Despite the deeper areas, most dives in the reef take place in less than 30 feet of water, making them ideal for novice divers and snorkelers alike. The Santa Rosa Reef is also quite popular, and that's due to its relatively shallow depth, its sea life, coral, and a wide array of sponges. The San Francisco Reef off the coast of San Francisco Beach is just offshore, so you won't need a boat to take you there. Though the reef has a huge drop-off wall, it's still in shallow water. Cozumel welcomes golfers as well. The Cozumel Country Club has a new course designed by Jack Nicklaus, the golf legend himself. Playa del Carmen in the Mexican mainland on the Yucatan Peninsula can be accessed by boat from Cozumel. Playa del Carmen has its share of great golf courses too.
